May. 22, 2017

EL CAJON, Calif. — Pastor, Bible teacher, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated TV and radio host, Dr. David Jeremiah releases the following statement regarding President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia and Israel:

“In Saudi Arabia and in Israel, President Trump has laid the groundwork for a broad and unified coalition throughout the Middle East. He is demonstrating to the world that there is a way forward if one has sufficient determination and knows what is negotiable and what is not. 

“As we all pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we pray with greater faith today knowing that the president has prayed there himself, first.  By visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, by becoming the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall, by not falling prey to the political status-quo, President Trump is acting with profound, political courage. 

“The only leaders who truly make a difference in history are those who do what needs to be done, not what everyone else tells them is possible. I commend the president and call upon Christians throughout the United States to pray for God’s continued blessing on this important journey, especially as he visits the State of Israel.”
